Willow Wiki

"An Eborsisk, by the gods! Kill it! Forget the man! Slay the beast before it breathes!"
General Kael, in Willow: A Novel

The Eborsisk was a kind of two-headed fire-breathing[3] dragon.[2]

During the battle of Tir Asleen, Willow Ufgood was surprised by a troll. He used Cherlindrea's wand to transform it into something else, and it resulted in a two-headed mass of flesh. He kicked it into the moat. The water started to boil, and shortly after a fully adult Eborsisk emerged, scaring both Madmartigan and the Nockmaar soldiers who were after Elora Danan.[3]

The Eborsisk and its flames brought havoc to all parties, until Madmartigan jumped on one of its heads and impaled it with his sword. Unable to breathe fire, the head exploded, killing the creature.[3]


According to IMDB and Phil Tippet, the name of the creature is a reference to the movie critics Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel.

It bears a little resemblance to Zmey Gorynych, a three-headed dragon from Slavic mythology, and King Ghidorah from the Godzilla franchise.
